yamanaka. >> suarez: the two scientists are from two different generations and celebrated today's announcement half a world apart. but today they were celebrated together for their research that led to a ground-breaking understanding of how cells work. sir john gurdon of cambridge university was awarded for his work in 1962. he was able to use specialized cells of frogs, like skin or intestinal cells, to generate new tad poles and show d.n.a. could drive the formation of cells in the body. 40 years later dr. shinya yamanaka built on that and went further. he was able to turn mature cells back into their earliest form as primitive cells. those cells are in many ways the equivalent of embryonic stem cells because they have the potential to develop into specialized cells. for heart, liver and other organs. dr. shinya yamanaka is currently working at kyoto university. embryonic stem cells have had to be harvested from human embryos, a source of debate and considerably controversy. for gurdon the prize at special meaning. at a news conference in london he recalled one school teacher'
professor is shinya yamanaka, a native of japan. he and a british researcher won for their discovery that mature specialized cells of the body can be reprogrammed to become any kind of cell. well, the nobel committee said the winners have shown that specialized cells can turn back it also said the discoveries will provide new tools for scientists around the world. this morning, a colleague of the bay area winner explained more about the significance. >> it's a major breakthrough because it removes many of the ethical issues that many have had about the use of human embryonic stem cells and it opens a whole new host of things we can do and ways to understand human disease using these stem cells we couldn't dream of before. >> the medicine award was the first no beg prize to be announced this year. >>> coming up there are a lot of new ways to catch a ride these days and two more have run afoul of the law. the latest crackdown on 21st century ride sharing. >> and first it was the slow economy. what could cause even more delays for the long-awaited north bay smart train. ,,,, dan hurd: w
to two scientists sharing the prize, john gurdon and japan's shinya yamanaka won for stem cell research, discovered that mature specialized cells can be reprogrammed to become immature cells capable of developing into all other tissue cells. congratulations to them. >>> the obama campaign is launching attack ad in virginia slamming mitt romney's foreign policy credentials ahead of romney's speech on foreign policy this morning. the obama camp claims romney's overseas trips have been reckless and amateurish. >>> the bronx bombers bats woke up in the ninth. the yankees scored five runs in the final frame to beat the orioles. take a 1-0 lead in the division series. in the national league the cincinnati reds are one win away from playing the pennant. crushed the giants behind pitcher bronson arroyo. he gave up just a sill hit in seven innings. >> anything -- >> won the world series in 2004 and 2007 -- >> just has to work it in, no matter what. what about the red sox? >> won in 2004 and 2007. >> so long ago. >> i know. >> 2004. >> yeah. i think i had 16 children in between them. >> come on.
the nobel prize in physiology of medicine. japan's shinya yamanaka shares the honor with britain's john b. gurdon. both discovered specialized cells that make up the body. >> the nobel assembly has today decided to award the nobel prize in physiology or medicine 2012 jointly to john b. gurdon and shinya yamanaka. >> the nobel assembly in stockholm, sweden, made the announcement monday. yamanaka is 50 years old. he's a professor at kyoto university. he established the method to produce a new type of cells called induced pluripotent stem cells, or isp. they're capable of becoming specialized cells which can be used to create tissue for neurons and heart muscle. john b. gurdon was the first one to discover that it might contain all the information found in an organism in 1962. 40 years later, yamanaka confirmed and expanded on gurdon's thesis. professor yamanaka spoke about his nobel prize win at kyoto university. >> translator: i am very happy about receiving this prize. but at the same time, i feel a great sense of responsibility. ips is a new technology, and it has a lot of potential in t
